Air France has announced that they will fly from Paris to Dubrovnik at the beginning of July. Slowly but surely international flights are coming back to Dubrovnik as the tourist season splutters forward. Air France announced this week on its official website that it is re-launching international routes to numerous destinations in Europe and the world, including three in Croatia, reports Croatian Aviation.
Air France originally planned to introduce a second daily rotation between Zagreb and Paris (thus connecting the two cities as many as 14 times a week), but the plans were of course disrupted by a pandemic and this will not happen this year.
The company will gradually increase the number of weekly flights to destinations in Croatia.
The Paris-Zagreb line is being reintroduced, from July 1, 3 times a week (Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays),
The Paris-Split line is reintroduced, from 13 July, 4 times a week (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays),
The Paris - Dubrovnik line is being reintroduced, from July 4, twice a week (Saturdays and Sundays). On the Paris-Dubrovnik route, another flight will be added per week, on Mondays, from 13 July.
Whilst this is great news for the Dubrovnik tourism industry it is only one small step in a long marathon to get tourism numbers back to the city.
